Brookline has info packet for new residents

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Brookline Economic Development Committee, I would like to welcome new residents and their families to Brookline!

The Economic Development Committee has developed tools and ways to better communicate with businesses and residents.

Welcome packets have been put together to provide as much information as possible for new residents. The packets are available to be picked up at the Town Hall. You will find valuable information about town services, town departments, schools, clubs, organizations and local shopping. Packets also include information and coupons from local businesses.

More information can be found on the town website at

The website offers an easy navigation for business owners, residents and visitors to access pages dedicated to news and events, as well as information on all town boards, committees, departments, organizations and schools.

Features include quick links to town resources such as past meetings via a link to Town Hall streams and receiving news via email by subscribing to e-alerts.

Dedicated pages for residents, businesses and economic development have also been created.

Businesses and residents can directly contact the website administrator to submit announcements and questions.

Do not hesitate to contact Town Hall staff with any questions you may have. We are here to assist you in any way we can.

The contact list can be found on the website at
